China to expand blockchain pilot, study forex reforms for cryptocurrency: regulator By Reuters


China to expand blockchain pilot, study forex reforms for cryptocurrency: regulator

SHANGHAI (Reuters) – China will expand the scope of its blockchain cross-border financing pilot platform, a senior official at the country’s foreign exchange regulator said on Tuesday.

Lu Lei, deputy head of the State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) make his remarks at a forum in Beijing, where he said the regulator will strengthen the integration of fintech and the foreign exchange market, while maintaining a grip on supervising technology development.

“We will gradually expand the scope of the pilot and the application scenarios of blockchain technology in cross-border financing and macro prudential management,” Lu said.

“At the same time, (the government) will push forward a prospective study on foreign exchange reforms to deal with cryptocurrency and explore the construction of the foreign exchange regulation and technology system under the new situation.”

Lu added that the SAFE’s cross-border financing blockchain platform is currently the only one registered by a central state agency at the Cyberspace Administration of China ().

The platform, first launched in March, has expanded to 19 provinces and cities in November from 9, according to Global Times, a newspaper published by the official People’s Daily.

China has studied the application of blockchain and artificial intelligence in cross-border financing with a focus on risk management, and will further liberalise its capital markets.

Blockchain has attracted a lot of attention in the past few months after Chinese President Xi Jinping said China should accelerate the development of blockchain technology, a digital ledger that forms the backbone of many cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin.

His remarks sparked a rush into the shares of firms engaged in, or believed to be engaged in blockchain or digital currency-related businesses.

This Cryptocurrency Seems Designed For A Post-State Society By Cointelegraph


This Cryptocurrency Seems Designed For A Post-State Society

Upstart crypto company Saga wants to issue a new global currency on the blockchain. Just don’t call it a stablecoin.

Saga’s SGA digital currency relies on an international reserve asset called Special Drawing Rights (SDR), which was introduced by the International Monetary Fund in 1969. This is a conventional basket of major world currencies — the US dollar, the euro, the British pound sterling, the Japanese yen, and the Chinese renminbi — that central banks around the world use to hedge against fluctuations in their own local currency. SGA borrows this model for a financial instrument and puts it on the blockchain.

China central bank cracks down on cryptocurrency trading in Shanghai By Reuters



SHANGHAI (Reuters) – China’s central bank launched on Friday a fresh crackdown on cryptocurrency trading in the financial hub of Shanghai, after Beijing’s promotion of blockchain technology reignited interest in virtual currencies.

The move came a day after financial regulators in Shenzhen launched a similar campaign, and as the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) is preparing to launch its own digital currency.

PBOC’s Shanghai headquarters said in a statement it would crack down on a resurgence of illegal activities around virtual currencies, and cautioned investors not to confuse such instruments with blockchain technology.

“The issuance, financing and trading of virtual currencies involve multiple risks,” PBOC said, vowing to uproot such activities.

Bitcoin’s price, which had dropped roughly 20% this month, extended its slide following the PBOC statement.

China launched a nationwide crackdown on cryptocurrencies in 2017, but interest in such currencies revived after Chinese President Xi Jinping said last month China should accelerate the development of blockchain technology, a digital ledger that forms the backbone of many cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin.

Xi’s remarks also sparked a rush into the shares of companies engaged in, or believed to be engaged in, blockchain or digital currency-related businesses.

PBOC said last week it had not issued any digital currencies nor authorized any asset trading platforms to trade such currencies.

PBOC’s Shanghai headquarters said it busted 13 platforms for initial coin offerings (ICOs) and 10 platforms for virtual currency trading during the previous crackdown in 2017.

The central bank added that it is still studying and testing its own digital currency.

PBOC is stepping up efforts to roll out its own digital currency, officially called Digital Currency Electronic Payment (DCEP), partly to fend off potential threats from Facebook’s proposed digital currency Libra.
